I love that knitting can create such gorgeous textures. And when I can find multiple textures that combine so effortlessly, it's a great thing!
This eternity scarf's generous width allows you to experience knitting three different textured stitch patterns that will then display beautifully when worn.
It starts with a Leaf lace panel that you work from end to end. Stitches are picked up along one of the long edges to work a very simple textured stitch as the middle layer. A few rows of Seed stitch as the top layer combats any curling and gives the scarf a neat finish.
Worked up in a soft (yet sturdy!) alpaca wool blend in a neutral color, this scarf is sure to be a fabulous, timeless, wear-with-everything accessory.
3/16/15: Small typo on p. 3: For Lace Panel, it should say Rep Row 1-10 (not -12) for the patt rep. New pdf can be downloaded through your store account.

I'm almost done with knitting this. I'm on the last seed stitch section and it's turning out to be beautiful. It's in a cashmere wool blend of hot pink called Sweet Pea. I've received so many compliments on it while knitting on breaks at work. SweaterBabe designs the best patterns!

I love this pattern. It came together beautifully. I made it in a "shades of gray, black and white" wool, cotton blend. The first tier looks like feathers. I plan on making more for Christmas gifts. My daughter-in-law made off with this one, so I need to try to make one for myself.
